Beef Paprikash with Fire-Roasted Tomatoes
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Cook: 1-3/4 hours
This is real comfortfood! My hubby is half hungarian and he approved of this recipe a lot. I can't even begin to understand how some people can rate this low. They must have done something wrong, like adding italian tomato sauce instead of hungarian or something. I fire-roasted the tomatoes myself in the oven btw. We had this with a glass of red wine and it was heaven. The kids loved it as well!
I usually don't go out of my way to post recipe reviews, but I thought some of these were pretty harsh. We made this tonight, and it was delicious. Our four kids all ate it just fine, some raving about how good it was. Several reviewers talked about the tomato sauce being overpowering, but we did not feel that way at all. We would definitely make this again. The beef turned out so tender and flavorful. We did use a whole gigantic sweet pepper instead of a small one like the recipe called for. My guess is that our pepper was about twice the recommended size, but I doubt that changed the flavor too much.
If I could give zero stars, I would. I was very disappointed with this bland recipe. The tomato sauce is extremely overpowering. It tastes completely one dimensional and unbalanced. It's honestly one of the worst recipes I've ever wasted my time, money and effort on. I spent $14 on beef to end up with an embarrassing failure of a Sunday dinner. I really suggest avoiding this recipe. I'm sure there are properly seasoned ones out there, but this one doesn't belong in that category.
The flavor was good and and the leftover stew did great after being frozen and reheated.
This recipe was just OK; there are better recipes out there so I won't be making this again.
Our family as a whole liked this. I put the stew over some stiff mashed potatoes and the starch was a great contrast to the stew liquid. I have never used canned fire-roasted tomatoes and I'm on the fence about them after eating this stew. I might just prefer regular canned tomatoes without the smokiness added. I don't know why a reviewer thought it was "bland"--I thought the flavor was quite strong! It's good enough to make again. The beef was certainly tender.
My kids didn't like this. Canned tomato flavor was too strong.
This was a very bland dish...I could not find the paprika listed, so had to use the regular. Thought it would be spicier with 2 Tbsp. of it though.
Wow! What a wonderful, flavorful dish! In true Hungarian style, I added one half cup sour cream before serving. Delicious!
Easy to prepare and had great flavor, my family loved it!!
